COHEAO advocates and educates Members of Congress and the Administration on campus-based student loans and other student financial services issues.  The main focus of these efforts has been the preservation and improvement of the Perkins Loan Program but have expanded into other areas that impact financial matters.

To contact your Congressional Representatives, visit the U.S. House of Representatives and the   U.S. Senate websites and follow the instructions for finding your representative.  If you have any questions or ideas on communicating with Congress, please feel free to share them with Wes Huffman of COHEAO (
